Jeffrey Archer's The Eleventh Commandment to be Developed for Television

The Eleventh Commandment by Jeffrey Archer

It was just last week that we were reporting that one of Jeffrey Archer's thrillers was being developed into the first of an expected film franchise.

Now we're learning that another of his novels, the 1999 political thriller The Eleventh Commandment, is heading for the small screen. Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) will steer the project.

The book centers on one Connor Fitzgerald. Devoted family man. Servant of his country. CIA assassin. Days before his retirement from the Company, Fitzgerald comes face to face with an enemy who, for the first time, even he cannot handle — his own boss, Helen Dexter, Director of the CIA.

But Dexter's stranglehold on the agency is threatened by a power greater than her own, and her only hope is to destroy Fitzgerald. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a new threat to national security is emerging: a ruthless hardline Russian president who is determined to force a military confrontation between the two superpowers. It's up to the intrepid Fitzgerald to pull off his most daring mission yet — save the world … and his own life.
